Agua de Jamaica With Mint


    1/3 cup of dried Jamaica (hibiscus) flowers
    1 cinnamon stick
    5 cloves
    5 sprigs of fresh mint
    8 cups of water
    fresh orange slices, if desired


  1. Rinse flowers in cold water in a colander.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot. Add Jamaica, cinnamon, and cloves. Allow to boil for 1 minute, stirring continuously.
  3. Remove from heat and add mint. Cover and allow to steep for 1-2 hours.
  4. Strain into a pitcher, pressing on solids to extract more liquids. Add additional cold water, to taste and orange slices, if desired. The tea should be very mild and not bitter. Add water until the taste becomes smooth. Store in the refrigerator. Serve over ice.

Jamaica will stain so don't use a pitcher that retains color.
